Gymnastics can be a lot of fun especially at the advanced level. Learn some tips on how to do an 'Arabian' in this free video clip on this Olympic sport.
Hi. My name's Jordan Dahl. We're talking about advanced floor gymnastics. And the next skill I wanted to talk about was an Arabian. This is the first skill where we're kind of switching from going back tumbling into front tumbling. What it is you'll go round off and from the rebound out of your round off you'll ride it up turn it around into a front tuck. Now the set on this is really important. A lot of my students tend to go round off, jump right from the ground and turn. You need to make sure you're finishing your set before you turn and do the front tuck. So let's walk through this technique. You need to make sure you're getting enough power out of your run and your round off to get a nice set just out of your round off. So you'll go round off, you'll want to get a straight up set so no angles with your feet on this one. Straight up. You're going to ride it all the way to the top and as you reach the climax you'll pull around into a front tuck, stay in that tuck position until you land.
